Sewickley, PA — Today, Independent Women’s Voice announced that Rep. Keith Rothfus (R-PA) has signed the ObamaCare Repeal Pledge. Rep. Rothfus represents Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional district.

"Rep. Keith Rothfus’s decision to take Pledge shows he gets it when it comes to health care,” said Heather R. Higgins, President and CEO of Independent Women's Voice. “This clearly demonstrates to voters his commitment to the full and complete repeal of ObamaCare.”

“Keith understands the harm that ObamaCare has already caused through increased premiums and costs, and a decreasing quality of care,” added Higgins. “ObamaCare means bigger government. It means less freedom. It means people have less choice and control in their health care decisions. And all of this will continue to grow worse if ObamaCare isn’t turned back.”

“I am proud to sign this pledge to vote to repeal ObamaCare,” stated Rep. Keith Rothfus. “ObamaCare has been a disaster for seniors and working families. We need to repeal and replace government run health care with patient centered reforms. Only this kind of reform will give the American people – rather than Washington bureaucrats – the freedom to control their own healthcare decisions.”

"The Repeal Pledge was designed as a litmus test to help the American public understand which candidates and office holders are serious about repeal, versus those who claim to be but won't actually take action," continued Higgins.  "With this commitment, Rep. Keith Rothfus passes that test."

The Repeal Pledge is a project of Independent Women's Voice, a 501(c)(4) nonpartisan, nonprofit organization.
